Net::FTP problem with localhost

Good day all!

I’ve started an FTP server on localhost:8021.
Other clients (I’ve tried wget) connect successfully.
Net:FTP.open(‘localhost:8021’) raises an exception:

SocketError: getaddrinfo: nodename nor servname provided, or not known

It is ruby 1.8.6 on Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard.
Could anyone please help me identify the source of the problem and give
me any advice?

Look at the connect method.

Untested:

ftp = Net::FTP.new
ftp.connect(host, port)
ftp.login(user, password)

hope that helps,

Thank you very much, Gordon.
That indeed saved the situation.
